Summer may be bidding us a fond farewell but the beats keep coming as we wind our way towards an autumn of cosy soundtracks and very warm dancefloors. There’s loads to raise the temperature this October including the brilliantly sharp tech and house of Arno Gonzalez’s The Delivery Boy on Timid Records, the techno twirl that is Aphrohead’s impressive Resurrection on Crosstown Records, Kito Jempere Objects Remixed by HNNY, Jacques Renault, OOFT! and more on Fata Morgana and the sublime beats of Toby Tobias Rising Son on Delusions of Grandeur. Never has seduction been so ably assisted.
For music with very decent intentions you can’t go wrong with the various artists including Move D, dynamic duo Bicep, Amir Alexander and Neville Watson as they deliver the goods for ‘First Annual Fundraiser – War Child’ on Craigie Knowws.
As for our must-hear wonders for October check out just one and you’ll be grinning from ear to ear. Be it the unique live techno set that is Mathew Johnson on Fabric 84, the too, too good grooves of Madhouse Amsterdam 2015 on Madhouse Records, the pleasure to treasure that is Mano Le Tough’s Trails on Permanent Vacation, the utterly charming grooves of Kyodai’s Reworks on Local Talk, the night beats of VIVa Warriors Season 4 – Mixed By Detlef & Denney on VIVa Music or the exquisite selection that is Seth Troxler’s DJ Kicks on !K7 your Autumn is sorted. All stylish like. Enjoy.
